be entirely of stone with decorated
arches supported with buttresses and
groupn of polished red granite col

The steps leading to the vestibule,
which will continue across? the church,
will be of stone; with half the flight
outside and the remainder of marble
inside. The vestibule and baptistry
will be floored with mosaic and have
marbled wainscot. There will be a
new exit provided on the west, leading
through the cloister porch to tha Bide
entry of the rectory.
The choir gallery will be enlarged
by being continued across the 'church
oyer the vestibule, and the same will
be reached by an easily climbed oaken
stairway. Commodious leather cover

with beveled glass, will lead from the
vestibule directly opposite the pew
aisles to the auditory. Another side
entry will be provided on the west
side, giving access through an enclosed
cloister to the auditory immediately
in front of the side altar, to the chapel
and to the cellar. A rear entrance will
give admittance to the chapeLand to
a rear passage connecting the chapel
with the sacristy. Thin will be of great
service to persons attending the chapel
and also to the acolytes.

pews along the walls.
The pews will be of mahogany with
carved back and seat, and handsomely
carved ends" resembling the bench ends
of Little Slielford church, Cambridge
shire. These will be so comfortable
that unsanitary cushions will be un
necessary. A feature of the rearrange
ment will be that there will be 20 per
cent greater seating capacity in the
same space in the nave, giving a total
seating capacity of about 750. The con
fessionals will be built in the vesti

double one on either side of the main
aisle. There will also be a confession

openings, and various gothic traceried
forms in the different parts, admitting
the use of emblems, single figures and
group subjects in the stained glass.
The entire building will bo roofed with
